There Are No Happy Loves (Veronica Rosenthal Mystery, 3)

We rated this book:


Investigative journalist Veronica is back to writing and on the case of missing people in this new novel. Things have not gotten easier for Veronica in her personal life, but events will turn deadly when she investigates the disappearance of a mother from a car crash. The mother is presumed dead, but Veronica’s investigation will take her into the halls of power within the Catholic Church and bring her to the attention of very powerful enemies. These people wish to keep multiple secrets, including what is happening to all those bodies that are cut up and shipped overseas, from getting out and damaging the Catholic Church in Argentina, while those in political power who wish to stay in power.

This book has a couple of different narrative threads at the beginning that eventually all roll into one story. The appearance of a truck full of body parts instead of drugs, missing adopted children who might not have been legally adopted, and the idea of people having children when they struggle through normal channels. Veronica is not the most likeable character. She has many flaws and is not agreeable, but she helps bring the underworld of Argentina to light.
